Can't paste into text box using keyboard but can using right click

KeithBoyntonKeithBoynton GBMember ✭✭✭

I have a user that can't paste text into textboxes in my app using the keyboard (Command + V) but they can do it using right mouse click and the context menu.

I can't reproduce the problem because in my version of the app and also when running it in my development environment it works fine and I haven't been able to find anything on the subject in the Apple docs or via Stack Overload or Google.

Does anyone have any ideas of what I could look for?

    it is hard to say, did you create your own textbox?
    maybe you need to create function with attribute [Export("Paste:")] or you need to create a menu item with combination key - Cmd + V and bind it to "Paste:" function

    Thank you guys for your responses, all I needed to add was the Edit menu and it works. Like you say it's the auto-wiring of the Command V via the edit menu that fixes it!
